those just starting to play cribbage or for those teaching a new
player you may find the basic scoring of cribbage to be a little
confusing. When I started out my grandfather scribbled notes about
the basic cribbage scoring hands on a small piece of paper. I carried
this in my pocket and referenced it often... until it was barely
legible... and by then I didn't need it any more.
I've done my best to recreate those notes here as a "cribbage scoring
aid." You can download a PDF of this cribbage cheat sheet for your
own use. I've
added crop marks on the cribbage scoring aid to make it easy to cut out
and tape to
a playing card for easy reference... and hopefully help you preserve the scoring
aid for a little longer than my grandfathers scribbled notes.
Note, this scoring
aid is for traditional cribbage. I've also included a scoring aid
within CrossCribb specific to the CrossCribb game.
